Not in effect yet and no specific ETA:

Quote
Last week at the World Championship awards banquet, I announced that the IDPA Board of Directors has elected to increase the Point Down penalty from a half second to 1 second. The BoD is comprised of two MA shooters (both Founders of the sport) and one EX with a combined total of more than 57 years of IDPA experience. This decision was made to keep the sport aligned with the founder's intent of valuing accuracy over speed. As concealed carry holders, which many of our members are, we are responsible for every round that leaves our gun, and IDPA needs to reflect that in our practices. I met with some of the Area Coordinators recently to share this information and the feedback received from them was very positive. There is no hard timetable for this change. Classification scores and other areas will need to reflect the change, and we are already working with some of our scoring vendors on this change. More information will be available as the work progresses and we will make updates on this via the Tactical Journal and Tactical Brief.

I was told at Comp Tac that June 2017 is the change over date. 

And yes, that is the day I stop competing in IDPA.  I'm not all that interested in a slow moving "bulls-eye" contest.

There is already a scoring rule that greatly penalizes inaccurate shooting.  It's called the "if there are no hits in the down 1 area, it's an FTN" rule which of course is a 5 second penalty per target.  Plus all the down 3s, no-shoots, and misses.  Bad shooting already can give 20-30 seconds of penalties.  Why run off a new or inexperienced action sport shooter by making it 40-60 seconds of penalties?

Not interested.  Many more choices out there.

OK.  I changed my mind.  I still don't like the timing rule but on balance, most of the other rule changes have made the sport more fun.

Still here.

I've always thought when I watched IDPA matches that accuracy was so much more important, but these guys are speed shooting and only hitting 1/4 of the time it seems like.

I'm not real fond of the new 1 second per point down, but it's not really making anyone slow down much, so it doesn't really have that much impact.

The second one was bad and I upgraded to an SP trigger.
